This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Although there is some ongoing debate about the benefits of today's high-tech hair dryers, many users insist that tourmaline models seem to work better. They can potentially give you a glossier, shinier finish; cut down on drying time by up to 40 percent; and prevent heat damage. The ones you'll find here offer ease of use and more, including accessories for various hair types. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best tourmaline hair dryer on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

September 09, 2020:

Whether or not tourmaline is the miracle addition to a hair dryer that some claim it to be, there's no arguing that the dryers listed here will get the job done. For most, the Rusk Engineering W8less remains an effective, long-lasting choice. It is lightweight, with thoughtfully-designed buttons and a sleek housing. The BaByliss Pro Titanium 5000 is a somewhat similar, if a bit more pricey, alternative, while the Conair MiniPro Folding is a travel dryer that won't take up too much room in your suitcase. But we removed the Revlon Perfect Heat over some durability concerns, ultimately replacing it with the more versatile Conair 3-in-1. Not only does this hot air brush come with two barrels, but it also has a concentrator attachment that makes straightening a breeze. In fact, most options you'll find here come with a concentrator, so if you need to smooth or add some volume to straight hair, it's hard to go wrong.

Curly haired guys and gals, on the other hand, may want to take a look at the Paul Mitchell Neuro, which has an amply-sized, collapsible silicone diffuser, or the Revlon Natural Texture, a diffuser dryer. You should note, though, that the Revlon model is arguably better for short hair than for long. That's down to its body, which is compact, without a typical long nozzle. Such a shape makes it easier for long hair to get sucked into the back — ouch — if you aren't careful with how you position it.

October 30, 2018:

Investigated models from the biggest names in hair dryers, including Conair, Revlon, and Rusk. Omitted the Revlon Infrared due to problems with its cord protector, but selected the Revlon Perfect Heat for its range of styling options. Also added the Oster Wall Mount for those individuals who are pressed for space.
